Yes they are. Countess Françoise de Lannoy is a daughter of Count Maurice, himself the youngest brother of Count Philippe, the great-grandfather of Stéphanie.

Countess Françoise is also the aunt of Minthia de Lannoy, the wife of Prince Lamoral de Ligne (the son of the late Prince Antoine de Ligne and of Princess Alix of Luxembourg).

The usual ranks are count (comte/graaf) and baron; there is also, however, the rank of viscount (vicomte/burggraaf) , which is lower than count, but higher than baron, and a hereditary title of knight (ridder), which is lower in rank than baron and is similar to a British baronet. A jonkheer , on the other hand, is basically an untitled member of the nobility.


Many Belgian titles of nobility are transmitted to all descendants in male line , i.e. all sons and umarried daughters of a baron are also barons or baronesses themselves. However, in some families where a title of baron for example is inherited only by the firstborn, the other younger children may hold the rank of jonkheer or jonkvrouw. The rank is, however, also hereditary in male line, so that sons of a jonkheer are also jokheren themselves and daughters of a jonkheer are jonkvrouwen until they get married.

In some other cases, on the other hand, a family may have been recognized as noble without having been given any title such as count or baron. In that cases, all descendants in male line of that family are also born as jonkheren or jonkvrouwen.

Others may give you a better answer, but, as far as I understand, the titles of duke and possibly marquis have never been granted in the current Kingdom of Belgium (established in 1831). There are a few Belgian families who bear those titles, but they were conferred by a foreign sovereign, usually befote 1795 , for example they are German imperial titles, or French titles, or titles granted in the period of Austrian rule in the southern Netherlands (i.e between the Treaty of Utrecht and the French occupation). By royal decree, the king's firstborn has the title of Duke or Duchess of Brabant, but that is not a hereditary title of nobility, but rather a personal title of the heir to the throne.

In the Kingdom of Netherlands on the other hand, unlike in Belgium, there are no surviving ducal families, and there are only two or three recognized titles of marquis, all of which are held by families who don't live in the Netherlands.

Generally no, but in some cases maybe.

In the UK, any peer of the realm other than a duke is styled a Lord. So, the Earl of Grantham in the Downton Abbey TV series for example is addressed and referred to as Lord Grantham. That is clearly different from a jonkheer, who, as I explained, is an untitled member of the nobility.

However, in the UK, a Lord can also be a younger son of a duke or marquess (i.e. a son who is not the heir to the peerage). In that case though, he is addressed using his full given name(s) and family name, e.g. Lord Alfred Henry Paget, as opposed to Lord + Designation of the Title as it would be the case for peers. A British Lord in the sense of a cadet son of a duke or marquess would be similar to a jonkheer in Belgium and the Netherlands, with the difference that, unlike the rank of jonkheer, the honorific Lord in that case is not hereditary in the UK. i.e. the son of a cadet son of a duke or marquess is not a Lord himself.

I believe that, in the past, the eldest sons of younger sons of peers, and their respective eldest sons in perpetuity used to be designated "esquires" in the UK, which would be perhaps the closest to a Dutch/Belgium jonkheer (sometimes translated in French as écuyer), but I think that convention is no longer used in the UK. Does anybody know for sure ?

The core base of the Belgian Nobility is the Filiatieregister of all family names which belong to the Nobility. The Hoge Raad van Adel (High Council of Nobility) of the Kingdom of the Netherlands started with this register in 1814, in order of King Willem I of the Netherlands.

Then the first so-called Adelslijst (List of Nobility) - consisting of 305 pages - was published in the State Gazette Nr 61 of 1825, see link.

The biggest chunk of today's hereditary Nobility in Belgium still comes from this Adelslijst of King Willem I. There are 7 princely families in Belgium (There were more but for an example the House of Croÿ has no prince anymore, it went to the German branch Croÿ-Solre. The House of Arenberg has no prince anymore. The House of Béthune-Hesdigneul has become extinct, etc.).

de Ligne
Enlisted into the first Adelslijst of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Habsbourg-Lorraine
Incorporation into the Nobility of Belgium in 1978

Lobkowicz
Admission into the Nobility of Belgium in 1958

de Merode
Enlisted into the first Adelslijst of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Chimay
Enlisted into the first Adelslijst of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Swiatopolk-Czetwertynski
Recognition into the Nobility of Belgium in 2007.

Waterloo
Enlisted into the first Adelslijst of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Jonkheer is a Belgian title and a Dutch predicate; Lord is a British title.

Daughters hold their titles after marriage as well. For example, Queen Mathilde holds the title and surname Countess d'Udekem d'Acoz, as can be seen in a Royal Decree published in December 2001:

Ordre de Léopold
Par arrêté royal du 19 septembre 2000 a été nommée :
Grand Cordon
La Princesse Mathilde, Marie, Christine, Ghislaine, Comtesse d'Udekem d'Acoz, Duchesse de Brabant, Princesse de Belgique (19.09.2000).

I believe they are addressed in French as Messire/Madame, and in Dutch as mijnheer/mevrouw.

I believe they are addressed in French as Messire/Madame, and in Dutch as mijnheer/mevrouw.
Surnames and titles stay with a person their whole life long, also for females. This is the case in the three Benelux countries. The Dutch lady Leila gravin de Marchant et d'Ansembourg is married to the Belgian Jonkheer Henri Van Lidth de Jeude.

Her married name is mevrouw Leila Marie Agnes Genevieve Andrée van Lidth de Jeude - gravin de Marchant et d'Ansembourg. This couple's children are jonkheer or jonkvrouw Van Lidth de Jeude, as only a title or predicate of the father can be inherited.

Names and titles are not given up when engaging into marriage. Tradition is to hypenate to the husband's surname.
